Chelsea have a few major positions of need to buy in this summer, and left back is definitely high up the priority list.
Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso haven’t done the business for Frank Lampard, and it seems a lot like he’s looking to make a major upgrade there this summer.
We’ve heard plenty of names mentioned over the years who might come in and try to make the position their own, but Nicolas Taglifico of Ajax is a relatively recent option.
We came up against him in the Champions League group stage twice this season, and his performances in that competition last season were there for all to see. It’s easy to see why Chelsea are interested, and they’re not the only ones.
Journalist Lucas Scagiola reports that Manchester City are now also moving into position to try and sign up the Argentina international. It’s never easy to sign top players, and this one looks like it will be a battle.
Quite when that battle will take place isn’t sure, with football on pause. But what is certain is that when we return to the market, a left back will be high up the list.
